Toronto Car Accident Lawyers Helping Those with Back and Spinal Injuries
Our law firm stands up for your rights
Many car accidents leave victims with back injuries. These types of injuries are often long-term and may require extensive medical treatment. Recovering compensation for medical expenses can be complicated. Negligent drivers may deny responsibility for the accident and insurance companies may challenge the seriousness of the injury.
At Smitiuch Injury Law, our experienced car accident lawyers understand the impact a back injury can have on victims and their families. Dealing with a back injury can lead to emotional and financial stress for families. It’s a very difficult time. We are dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome.
A back injury can be painful and greatly affect mobility. You may be unable to move or walk normally for weeks, months or even years – depending on the severity of the injury. You may be unable to return to work, at least until you do recover from your injuries. Some victims are left with a permanent disability.
If we don’t recover compensation, you owe us nothing
The effects of a back, spinal cord or vertebrae injury can be life-altering. Rehabilitation can take months or years, and an injury victim may never recover completely. Those recovering from back injury should focus on healing, but you may need to act quickly to recover the financial compensation you need and deserve.
Clients are at the centre of everything we do. The car accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law are here to help injury victims. We can connect our clients with the right doctors, medical clinics and case managers to help them on the way to recovery.
Back, spinal cord and vertebrae injuries can result in:
- Back sprain (torn or stretched ligament)
- Back strain (stretched or torn tendon or muscle)
- Fractured vertebrae (sometimes called a compression fracture)
- Herniated disk (ruptured disk in the back, causing severe pain)
- Incomplete spinal cord injury (partially severed spinal cord)
- Complete spinal cord injury (completely severed spinal cord resulting in paralysis)
As catastrophic injury victims know, having the right wheelchair or proper home modifications are often necessary for your quality of life. Our car accident lawyers will listen to our clients' needs and help them access the services they need, both for their initial treatment period and for the rest of their life.
Our legal team gets results in the GTA
Recovering compensation after a car accident can be complicated. We start by getting the facts. Our legal team gathers evidence to prove that a negligent driver caused the crash that left you injured. We carefully review police reports and medical records. We interview witnesses, and we consult accident reconstruction experts and medical experts.
We’ve been helping the injured since 2001, and insurance companies are very familiar with us. They know that our lawyers are always prepared with a strong case. They know that we are never afraid to go to trial for our clients. That’s why insurance companies often agree to negotiate a settlement with us.
Our lawyers know that clients who have suffered a back injury are concerned about the high cost of legal fees. That is why our initial consultations are free, and if we take your case, we have a “no win, no fee” policy. Our fees are charged on a contingency basis. That means you will pay nothing if we do not get you compensation.
